Saturday Review of Books: September 6, 2008

Posted by Sherry on 9/5/2008 in General, Saturday Reviews |

“Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting one at the end of a long day makes that day happier.”
~Kathleen Norris

Welcome to this week’s Saturday Review of Books.

Here’s how it works. Find a review on your blog posted sometime this week of a book you’re reading or a book you’ve read. The review doesn’t have to be a formal sort of thing. You can just write your thoughts on a particular book, a few ideas inspired by reading the book, your evaluation, quotations, whatever.

Now post a link here to the specific post where you’ve written your book review. Don’t link to your main blog page because this kind of link makes it hard to find the book review, especially when people drop in later after you’ve added new content to your blog. In parentheses after your name, add the title of the book you’re reviewing. This addition will help people to find the reviews they’re most interested in reading.

    Carol. thanks for contributing. I don’t know which book the quotation is from. I collect bookish quotations from everywhere and save them in a document, and I don’t always save the information on where I got them.
